Landscape architecture

Landscape architecture is fundamentally about creating spaces and places for people. We aim to deliver creative, functional and attractive solutions.

What we do

Our landscape architecture team has a wealth of creative talent and technical expertise. Our approach is site-responsive with a strong focus on achieving environmentally sustainable outcomes, combining creativity and precision to ensure a smooth delivery into built reality.

We work collaboratively with our clients in the public and private sectors to design places and spaces that incorporate the use, occupation and enjoyment of external environments. We design solutions that create, improve or rejuvenate external spaces, with a focus on considering the needs of the the individuals, groups or communities who will occupy and enjoy those spaces.

Our track record features work across a wide range of environments and settings, including civic, commercial, institutional, recreational, educational, mixed-use and residential projects.

We have the in-house capability to take designs from the early stages of pre-feasibility studies through master planning, concept design, design development, documentation and into construction.
